An autonomous unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) launch-and-recover system designed by Teledyne FLIR Defense and integrated with a new micro UAV has been debuted at DSEI 2023, held from 12 to 15 September in London.

Known as the Black Recon Vehicle Reconnaissance System (VRS), the prototype is intended to provide autonomous persistent reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition (RSTA) for crews in military vehicles or for critical infrastructure to enhance situational awareness, Ketil Vanebo, senior business director for the company, told Janes.

This is enabled with a new low-signature micro UAV designed by the company that is equipped with electro-optical (EO) and infrared payloads. Using a cradle arm, the UAV is autonomously launched, retrieved, and recharged to enable continuous operation, he said.

Each 30 kg Black Recon VRS consists of three micro UAVs that each weigh 350 g, have an operational flight time of 45 minutes, a maximum range of 5–6 km, and are able to withstand wind conditions of 12 m/s as well as moderate rain conditions, he added.
